1.5L Twin-Carb rebuild questions please pelase help me! :)
i'm considering rebuilding a 1.5L twin carb insteasd of forking out for the 1.7L version, because I've got an old 1.5L engine lying around in the back yard...
Now, the 1.5L specs are 84x67.2 (Bore X Stroke) and the 1.7L is 87x72.7.
Does anyone know, form experience or from something they read, if it is possible to bore the 1.5 out to the 1.7 spec given above??? I'm assuming it may be possible but unsure??
I would really like to speak to anyone who has rebuilt/modified a 1.5 or 1.7 engine as i have many questions regarding boring, shaving the head (how much is is possible??), crankshaft and camshaft specs for max power, while still letting the car idle for road use.
If you have any knowledge or know anyone who does have any knowledge about any or all of this, I really would love to hear from you....
Southern75: I remember once you spoke about a guy in Sydney who rebuilds 1.5/1.7L engines for racing or soemthing>????? Would love to hear more about this, or some contact details for him would be great???
Thankyou all in advance,
